Frequent trains and overground services can quickly get you to London, Milton Keynes, and other nearby towns from Watford Junction, one of the busiest transport hubs in the area.

The housing market in Watford

Watford has experienced a property boom fuelled by high demand for homes in this area. Since many people no longer need to live and work in big cities, remote work arrangements are driving them into other areas – and Watford is one of them.

Overall, property prices in Watford have increased by 5% over the past year.

Best areas to live in Watford

Watford appeals a wide range of people, from families with children to young professionals. Each group has different needs and priorities, and they may choose different areas to live in. But in our experience, the following neighbourhoods are the best in terms of amenities, safety, and quality of life:

Leavesden: A convenient choice for Watford residents who need to commute into London due to its excellent road and public transport links. Leavesden also offers easy access to outdoor and green areas and has all the services and amenities you need, from supermarkets to cinemas.

Aldenham: Approximately 3 miles east of Watford city centre, Aldenham offers a quiet lifestyle and some of the finest properties in the Watford area.

Hunton Bridge: A historic village located right on the River Gade, 4 miles north of downtown Watford. The village offers a quiet environment and easy access to the Hertfordshire countryside.

Garston: Perfect for anyone looking for that quaint village-like atmosphere, yet being only a 10-minute drive away from Watford city centre.

There are more than 70 schools and nurseries in Watford. Parkgate Junior School and Saint Michael’s Catholic High School have been rated as “outstanding” by Ofsted.

The best secondary school is Watford Grammar, and there are also a few independent schools like St Margaret’s, Hedge Grove, and St Hilda’s.

A case study for recent move in Watford

A few months ago, our customer service team got an enquiry from a family looking to move from Reading to Watford. Like we usually do, we took our time getting to know the customer’s needs to make sure we could offer a solution that matched their expectations.

We found out that this family of 5 (two adults, two kids, and a dog) had only moved homes once in the past, and that the experience left a lot to be desired. Because of this, they were a bit wary and they mentioned that their priority was finding a company they could trust.

Our team went over the move requirements in detail. Then, we explained the entire process and all we do to keep our customer’s belongings safe when getting them from A to B. We made sure to explain that we understand that some possessions are irreplaceable due to their sentimental value, and that we always treat every item with utmost respect.

We also talked about our team members’ qualifications and experience, and about how we only use the most sturdy packing materials. Needless to say, our customers were relieved when they found out that they wouldn’t have to worry about buying the materials themselves. We know how time consuming that can be!

The family had an additional concern: they had contacted several removal companies in Watford, and they had been discouraged by those interactions, as they had been told that moving homes in the middle of Covid-related disruption would be very stressful.

We knew that moving during this uncertain time would require taking additional measures, but we reassured our customer that with some planning, it’s possible to deliver a first-class removals service even in these challenging times. We went over all the additional health and safety measures we are taking during each move to minimise risks for everyone involved.

And as we always do, after discussing the logistics of the move, we asked our customers “what else can we do to make this move easier for you?”. Turns out that they didn’t know about our professional packing service, which is a huge time saver for families in the middle of a move. We built this service into the removals package, and this helped take off a lot of stress in the days leading to moving date.

On moving day, everything went smoothly. We are happy to have helped this family start a new chapter of their lives without unnecessary worries and without wasting time or money. Olympia Removals Watford is pleased to add one more 5-star review to our list of happy customers.

Case study recap:

Location details: Reading to Watford.
Date: 15th July 2021.
Move size: From a 3-bedroom apartment to a 4-bedroom house.
Access: The apartment was located on a third floor, so our team used a hoist to safely move large items. The rest of items were moved using dollies.
Service chosen: Full packing and moving service.
Materials used: 52 boxes of various sizes, 1 sofa cover, 4 mattress covers, 8 wardrobe cartons.

Customer review:

“Olympia Removals are really different from other moving companies in Watford. We realised this from the first phone call, we could tell they actually cared about us! They went out of their way to discuss all our concerns and to offer a solution that we could afford. And on moving day, everything went like clockwork!
